Little Bit About St.Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is a festive holiday celebrated every year on March 17th.

It originated as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, but has evolved into a global celebration of Irish culture and heritage.

The holiday is marked by wearing green, parades, traditional Irish music and dance, and of course, plenty of shamrocks.

In many countries, St. Patrick’s Day is a time to come together with friends and family to enjoy good food, music, and maybe even a pint of green beer.

As you crochet your shamrock bookmark and commemorate St. Patrick’s Day, take a moment to appreciate the history and traditions that make this holiday so special.

The Difference Between Shamrock and Clover

Firstly, shamrocks always have three leaves. Clovers on the other hand can have a fourth leaf.

Shamrocks are usually green, however you can find clover of different colors like purple, green or white.

Finally, shamrocks grow in clumps, while four-leaf clovers are quite rare, tricky to find and grow one at a time.
